How does it feel to be lactose intolerant hi I have been drinking lots of milk latley and afterwards I get the worst stomach aches do you think that means I could be lactose intolerant?

Lactose . Lactose intolerance is the lack of an intestinal enzyme called lactase and is the inability to digest lactose - the sugar found in milk and other dairy products. Babies are born with the lactase enzyme and most lactose intolerance does not occur until age 3 or older if at all. As people age, they can lose the lactase enzyme. Symptoms can be bloating, cramps, diarrhea, nausea and poor growth in children. Some races such as asians and african americans are more susceptable to lactose intolerance than caucasians. A pretty good way to tell whether you are lactose intolerant is to stop eating dairy and see if your symptoms improve. Then, restart eating dairy and see if they return. If you enjoy milk and other dairy, you can try using "lactaid" products that already have the lactose component broken down or there are lactase supplements you can take prior to eating dairy.

Slightly lactose intolerant. Ate too much pasta & cheese today, I also ate too much chocolate. So I have a stomach ache. Will an enema ease the ache?

No. Lactose intolerance is the result of missing the enzyme on the lining of your intestine that breaks down the lactose sugar. The undigested sugar passes into the colon where the colon's bacteria metabolize it, producing gases and free fatty acids that pull water into the intestine, resulting in diarrhea. An enema would only make that worse. . Read more...

If lactose intolerant, can bloating/stomach ache/nausea last for 24 hours after eating dairy?

Lactose intolerance? Lactose breath testing (objective) or a clinical response to lactase enzyme supplements ;/or milk avoidance (subjective decline in the gassiness & diarrhea associated with ingesting lactose) may clarify your concern.
